If you have been charged with assault, it is imperative you contact an attorney immediately. Assault charges can range from simple assault to aggravated assault. If convicted, assault charges carry serious, long-term consequences.
An assault charge can be considered family violence when it occurs between spouses, parents, children, live-in boyfriends or girlfriends or roommates.
Typically there are two proceedings that result from allegations of an assault. The first proceeding is a protective order. A protective order prevents the alleged offender from contacting the alleged victim. The second proceeding is the criminal case.
